NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
436 PM CST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Short term... 
showers and a few thunderstorms are still possible late this 
afternoon and into the evening hours as a warm front pushes 
onshore. Temperatures and dewpoints feel more like Spring rather 
than winter. As a southerner...generally when you get this kind of 
feeling in December you know that some pretty strong storms could 
be possible before your next cool down. This is the situation that 
will unfold over the next 24 to 48 hours over the southeast. 
Current analysis shows that the aforementioned warm front is already 
bisecting the forecast area this afternoon as dewpoints are 
currently in the middle to upper 60s along and south of Interstate 
10/12. A few showers have been developing this afternoon in 
advance of this warm front and we expect that trend to continue 
this evening and overnight. 


Tuesday still looks to be a pretty active day as the Storm 
Prediction Center maintains a slight risk for severe weather over 
the entire forecast area. A deepening low should begin to push 
across the nation and with it should bring a cold front through 
the region. With this warm moist air in place and a large scale 
forcing expected to come through the region strong to severe 
storms will be a concern...all modes of severe weather are 
possible as this system moves through Tuesday. There are a few 
things that could limit this threat however...instability still 
looks to be somewhat conditional as clouds...fog..and possibly 
ongoing convection could dampen the amount of instability that the 
system has to work with. The jet dynamics and some of the other 
severe weather parameters look pretty good. The shear is 
there...the helicity is there...forcing will be here...but the 
instability could be the limiting factor. The best combination of 
all the parameters look to be along the coast and across the 
eastern portions of the forecast area. The northern extent of the 
possible severe weather depends on how far north the warm front 
gets tonight and tomorrow before the cold front sweeps through. 
It still remains to be seen how far north the warm sector will 
extend...but given that we already have dewpoints in the middle to 
upper 60s across portions of the forecast area...the warm sector 
is already making a northward push. We will have to watch all of 
these factors through the overnight hours and watch the evolution 
of this system closely. Just remain weather aware tonight and 
Tuesday and pay attention to the forecast as updates are made. 13/mh 


Long term... 
the front will mover through the area Tuesday night and The Heart 
of the cold air will filter into the area on Wednesday ad 
Wednesday night. Wednesday will be cooler in the 50s and Wednesday 
night look for temperatures to dip into the 30s for Christmas 
morning. The trough axis will finally begin to pull east of the area on 
Thursday...with strong subsidence and very dry air taking hold of 
the area. Sunny skies and cooler than normal temperatures can be 
expected. Daytime highs will only climb into the middle to upper 
50s and lows on Thursday night will drop back into the lower 40s 
over inland locations as conditions radiate out. There are still 
differences in the long range with the GFS and European model (ecmwf)...have not 
made any significant changes to the forecast. Have continued with 
a blend of model guidance. This continues to bring a chance of 
rain to the area beginning Friday night and continuing into 
Saturday and Saturday night as the trough axis and frontal 
boundary move through the area. Will have to watch and see if 
thunderstorms will need to be added to the forecast during this 
time frame. 13/mh 


&& 


Aviation... 
generally MVFR to IFR conditions will prevail through the period 
with low clouds settling in after sunset. Warm front will move 
northward late...with isolated to scattered showers and possibly a 
few thunderstorms. Have included thunderstorms in the vicinity toward the end of the period 
at all taf sites as thunderstorms become more likely. Squall line 
will move through ahead of cold front Tuesday evening...with an 
accompanying wind shift to the northwest and strong gusts possible. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds should then begin to respond to synoptic scale frontal 
system developing in the plains states with deeper fetch into the 
Gulf to increase winds to low end Small Craft Advisory levels over 
the next 24 hours. Have already put up exercise caution headlines 
for portions of the coastal waters tonight as conditions are 
expected to deteriorate overnight and tomorrow. A hard wind shift 
still looks to be on track for late Tuesday night into Wednesday 
morning as small craft conditions look to be on The Table during 
this time frame. Squall line convection on the coastal waters 
late Tuesday evening will likely prompt short- fused marine 
warning issuances during that time- frame. Severe weather 
potential should move east of MS coastal waters by daybreak 
Wednesday.
